Fans can enjoy Final 8 games on ESPN (Brazil), DirecTV (Latin America) and the BCL Americas YouTube channel in Spanish, and the FIBA YouTube channel in English.


Flamengo, the 2020-21 BCL Americas Champion and the current FIBA Intercontinental Champion will have an opportunity to play in front of their fans in their journey to become first BCL Americas back-to-back Champion.
